Searching For Books In discoverE

Library Search provides access to the Emory Libraries catalog, Articles+ and other search tools.

Library Search is  Emory libraries' online catalog.  You can find books from this online catalog, as well as journals, videos, government documents and archives at the library stacks in Woodruff, Pitts Theology, Health Sciences Center, McMillan Law, Guy Chemistry, Math & Science Center and Oxford libraries. 

Books that are at Oxford and the Library Service Center can be requested.  Checked out books can be recalled.

In Library Search:

  1. Click the title you'd like to request
  2. Click the "Physical Resources" tab
  3. Then click the "Request" button (you will need to be logged in to your account for this to appear)

Library will notify you by email when the item is available.

If the item is checked out, the borrower has ten days to return it.

Other Library Catalog


If you can't find the book you need from Emory libraries, that's not the end of your search.  You can continue at WorldCat, the online catalog of books and other materials held in the libraries almost all over the world.  You can retrieve the book you found from WorldCat through Interlibrary Loan, for details see next section.

Getting Books Emory does Not Own

Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a borrowing service for Emory students, faculty, and staff.  If a book, an article, a DVD, or any other resource that you need is not owned by Emory, the ILL team will try to get a copy from another library for you. It is a free service, but it will take about two weeks to diliever the material to you.  So, start your research earlier just in case you need to use this service.
